Amniotic fluid index (AFI) is a rough estimate of the amount of amniotic fluid and is an index for the fetal well-being. It is a part of the biophysical profile. AFI is the score given to the amount of amniotic fluid (by adding up centimeters of depth of four pockets of fluid) seen on pregnant uterus by ultrasound. Doctors may use this four-quadrant technique or the "Single Deepest Pocket" technique to determine the AFI. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License.
